Sweet Potato Noodle Breakfast Hash

Trying to come up with a great tasting meal that’s also exciting is easier said than done. In my house, we love pasta because it’s an easy way to incorporate a good amount of greens or vegetables. However, eating pasta dishes day after day can become monotonous.

That’s why it’s fun to shake some recipes up a little bit by swapping out dried pasta with fresh veggie noodles. Although the difference in color and texture of the veggie noodles compared to regular pasta is obvious, the flavor and nutritional advantages of veggie noodles are absolutely worth it.

This recipe for a sweet potato noodle breakfast hash originated from a craving to have a breakfast that was not only filling, but energizing. After looking through my fridge to discover several partially used ingredients, I realized that there was potential to make something unique.

Prepping the ingredients takes 10 minutes (at most) and each step of the cooking process is simple to execute. The resulting dish left me in a daze between the first and final bites. The mouthwatering delight that came from a tender sweet potato noodle wrapped around my fork that’s skewered a chunk of onion and bell pepper with a rich egg yolk river flowing throughout was pure breakfast bliss.

Instructions

  • Heat a heavy bottomed pot or wok to medium heat.
  • Add butter or olive oil.
  • Add onions and bell pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, sweet potato noodles, red pepper flakes, and remaining butter. Cook another 5 minutes until sweet potato noodles become tender.
  • Reduce heat to medium low, add curly kale and cover pot for about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, fry up two pasture-raised eggs, maintaining a soft, runny yolk, but firm white.
  • Remove lid from pot, add salt & pepper, then stir mixture and let it finish cooking for 2-3 more minutes.
  • Scoop sweet potato hash mixture onto two separate plates. Place fried eggs on top.
  • Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
